Long Sutton

Trip Planner Europe  /  UK  /  England  /  Lincolnshire  /  Long Sutton
Long Sutton, is a market town in the South Holland district of Lincolnshire, England. It lies the Lincolnshire Fens, close to the Wash and 13mi east from Spalding.HistoryLong Sutton was historically in the wapentake of Elloe in the Parts of Holland. The Friday market dates back to the early 13th century when the town was a prosperous trading centre. By the mid-14th century, it was considered to be one of the richest communities in Lincolnshire.Within St Mary's Church can be found a memorial inscribed "Alas Poor Bailey". This is in memory of a local surgeon, John Bailey, who was killed by robbers while returning to the town following a visit to a patient in Tydd St Mary. He was attacked just after midnight on 22 April 1795. His murderers were never caught.Prosperity continued into the 20th century, helped by the arrival of the railways. In the 1950s eleven trains would daily transport passengers and local produce to and from the town.The town previously had a railway station on the Midland and Great Northern Joint Railway. However, it was closed in 1959 when passenger services were withdrawn from almost the entire M&GN route.
